The company behind a highly ambitious plan to build a combined road and tidal generation scheme across Morecambe Bay is stepping up its efforts to attract funding and support. Northern Tidal Power Gateways wants to build dual carriageways stretching across Morecambe Bay to Barrow and then across the Duddon Estuary to Millom and Moorside.
